Bethany and I take some time to talk about the Thanksgiving season, and I love her take on serving family and friends within the home, both from a practical standpoint and a spiritual standpoint. We also talk a bit about perfectionism and saying no to it during the holidays.

Karen and I packed a lot into 20 minutes. Mainly, we spoke to having hearts of gratitude in all things. While it's only October, Thanksgiving will be here before we know it. And fun fact: Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving in October, so I suppose this comes right on time for them. In the last four episodes of Season 2, we'll prepare for Thanksgiving by first preparing our hearts. We hope you'll join us!

Do you struggle with fear? On today's episode, I'm talking about fear regarding relationship with family and friends. I have come to find that it's in stillness with God where fears are calmed, where I can truly say "it is well with my soul," where I can walk with confidence because God is holding everything together...

In this episode, Megan and I talk about how stillness can be difficult in the busy seasons. Between children and work and projects on their fixer upper, Megan approaches this topic of stillness with honesty. She doesn't have it figured out and neither do I. Does anybody, really? Since none of us are experts when it comes to being still, maybe we can all just learn together in this episode.

I want to breath deeply, to seek the beauty of holiness, to calm the worry over things not being exactly how I'd like, and to simply "be."

Life is hard. Just as we get used to life being one way, something changes. As we end out the theme of endings for the month of August, can we have hopeful vision even if we are facing an ending to one part of our lives right now?

Parenting is hard and requires sacrifice. Emily Allen, podcast host for Kindred Mom and Mama to six children, talks a bit about what coming to the end of herself looks like as well as how she makes time for herself. You'll hear about how she stopped her business to focus on her children after feeling stretched too thin.

Our very first guest on Making The Time Podcast is Laura Thomas. She lives in Canada and is originally from the UK, the author of several books for young adults, and an almost "empty" nester. I think you'll discover that her life is far from empty. She's confident and full of wisdom, and I think you will love listening to her accent.

Each of us have pieces of our story that are hard to tell, pieces that we'd rather forget. But oftentimes, it's those stories that point us toward hope, toward redemption, toward peace. I don't know what pain or suffering has you feeling trapped today. It may be something present or, as presented in this podcast, it may be a story that happened years ago that continues to disrupt your life. I hope this episode reminds you that you can trust in the pieces that make up your story and entrust your...

In this episode, I bring a memory from my childhood to remembrance and share it with you. I also explain how you can remember your story and why you should make the time to remember your story. This process of remembering may remain untold and hidden within you, it may reach your closest friends, or it may reach the world. Whatever your story and however you choose to tell it or not tell it, may this episode remind you that your story is unique and may be worth remembering.  From The...

It's "Good" Friday today, and in this episode, I read some scripture on the care that Jesus showed his disciples when his betrayal was already in the works. I talk about how care and compassion relate to the dreams we carry, and share with you a favorite story of mine in which I recognized the compassion of many. I hope this episode reaches you as you reflect on the meaning of this weekend.  From The Podcast: Scripture taken from John 13.

Ever wonder what the Bible really says about music? It's no wonder that there are many passionate opinions regarding music when it has the ability to evoke such emotion in just a few minutes. There is certainly music that we should listen to and music we should avoid. This podcast doesn't serve to boss your music list around, but to show you what positive music can do for your life and to show you an instance where God showed some of his glory after music was played in the Bible. While most of...

You have a dream that won't go away. It's sort of a lingering goal, one you may or may not be taking baby steps toward. In this episode, I am talking about those kinds of dreams, the ones that seem impossible or far off, but ones you can't stop thinking about. I talk about a man who won four Olympic gold medals in the 1936 Summer Olympics despite the ridicule he overcame, despite Hitler's opposition himself. I don't mention Hitler in my podcast, but you can read the whole story written by...

Do you ever feel like your dreams are on hold? Does it make you anxious when your dreams feel unattainable? On the podcast this month, our theme "Be A Dreamer" will take a closer look into having goals and dreams and how those are okay when we choose to have the right attitude about them.  In this episode, I talk specifically about disappointment versus contentment, how circumstances (perhaps dreams themselves) keep us from attaining other dreams, why I love to travel, the one...

As a child, I assumed that the friendships I held then would last forever. However, not all friendships are meant to last forever. We grow up, and then a combination of events happen. We may move away. We may get married. We may have children. And with added responsibility that comes with being an adult, we have less and less time for the friendships we once held. We grow and move on and make a few new friends in the process. However, we can still make the time for those long-distance...

I don't know about you, but parenting may be the single hardest calling I've ever taken part in. It doesn't matter the age of your children, every stage comes with difficulties. There are certainly plenty of parenting books out there and everyone has their own styles of raising children and they want to teach you how to be a better parent. In this episode, I'm not teaching you. I'm coming alongside you, hoping to encourage as you love your children well. l will talk about some of the things...

When we said "I do," we promised to have and to hold until death do us part. And we promised to do that no matter what. To have and to hold means we cherish our spouse, and that we spend time with one another. But in the busy of life, it can be difficult to live that out sometimes, and it's not because we don't love our spouse, but because it's difficult to carve out intentional time for our spouse. In this episode, we will uncover ways to make time for our spouse and what loving them...

God is ever-present. Jesus is Emmanuel (God with us). Do you ever want to know God's love and love him back but you just don't know where to start or feel sorta disconnected? In this episode, I'll talk through my favorite way to read the greatest love letter written. You'll also learn the scripture that challenged me to finally start this podcast, and to make the time for the important things, serving in love instead of stress, because we must first make the time for he who created us with the...

This podcast is for those who want to carve out intentional time for the things and the people they love. In this episode, I simply talk a bit about me and my family and my choosing to be a stay-at-home mama. No shame in fellow mamas who have to work. Trust me. I get it.
